    If you are looking for a story about cheerful youngsters spending a jolly time at boarding school, look elsewhere. Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are intelligent and resourceful children, and you might expect that they would do very well at school.

    Would you listen to The Austere Academy again? Why?

    Lemony Snicket is a great writer. A Series of Unfortunate Events is a great, fun series. Snicket’s narration is OK, but doesn’t compare well to Tim Curry. They should release an additional audiobook with Tim Curry for all of the Snicket narrations so people have a choice.


    What other book might you compare The Austere Academy to and why?

    The rest of the series. Lewis Carroll.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Lemony Snicket’s performances?

    Yes, but would rather have Tim Curry.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    1. Ruining Christmas December 17. 2. We're very concerned. 3. Darkening theaters December 17.


    Any additional comments?

    Please release an additional audiobook with Tim Curry for all of the Snicket narrations so people have a choice.
